Less than a year after launching its first store in Jurong, Surrey Hills Grocer has opened another — right in the heart of town. The Australian specialty grocery store launched its second outlet at the Ion Orchard shopping complex on Nov 2. 

The Ion Orchard store features aisles of groceries — some of them imported directly from Australia — as well as a dine-in cafe. Similar to its Jurong outlet, the store embodies a modern yet rustic interior design. 

Guests can indulge in its picture-perfect food, while winding down in the midst of lush greenery and earthy wooden furnishings. Seats are plentiful, too, with some lining up along the bar and others positioned beside the windows for a view of the streets. 

However, unlike its first store, the Ion Orchard outlet is not pet-friendly.

The Orchard cafe will serve brunch offerings till 4pm. A crowd favourite is the pork shoulder benny (S$28). It comprises a 48-hour sous vide pork shoulder, mixed with house barbecue sauce, hollandaise sauce and maple bacon. 

For mains, a must-try is the chilli crab spaghetti (S$26). An ode to the famous local chilli crab, the meal comprises housemade chilli rempah, fresh crab claw meat, direct-from-farm mizuna greens and tobiko (Japanese for flying fish roe).

If you drop by with a group of friends, you should get one of the items in the sharing section of the menu. The list includes the addictive triple truffle fries (S$16), sweet potato fries (S$14) and the bite-sized nacho cheese tater tots (S$14).

Foodies with a sweet tooth can also get their gelato fix from homegrown ice-cream brand Creamier, available in-store.

While there, you can check out the wide variety of Australian brands for a gastronomic feast at home, which includes chocolatier Koko Black and the Pepe Saya Butter Company. Fresh vegetables and meat are also available.

Surrey Hills Grocer is on the GrabMart delivery service. You can also book a ride to its stores.
